For sailboat captain Gill Terry Causey, the movement of the waves is meditative, granting him profound peacefulness and oneness with the ocean.
Let the Wind Carry Me is part autobiography, part detailed travelogue, and part breathtaking pictorial of Causey’s worldwide sailing adventures. He shares vivid details (and more than 50 photos) from some of his most memorable excursions, and peppers his narrative with personal insights and reflections on the seeds planted early in his youth that inspired him to explore the world without boundaries.
Readers can experience the exact moment when Causey fell in love with bluewater sailing and hop on board as he runs a successful charter boat in the Hawaiian Islands, explores South America and the Amazon forest, embarks on adventures in Central America, and sails the islands of French Polynesia.
This is a story that will inspire you, like Causey, to explore and embrace the transformational power of travel.
A lifelong ocean-cruising sailor and a patron of maritime causes and projects from Hawaii (where he lived for more than half his life) to California, Terry Causey now divides his time between Kona, Hawaii, Sausalito, and Newport Beach, California.
